The History of Ali Baba Trousers
These fabulous trousers are a style of harem trousers. Harem trousers are essentially long baggy trousers that have been caught in at the ankle to give them the shape that they are well known for. The difference between Ali Baba trousers and Harem Trousers is that the crotch on Ali Baba’s are much baggier. The baggier crotch gives the trousers edge as often instead of looking like a pair of trousers, it makes it look like a nice hippy skirt. The benefit of having closed off trousers to stop drafts yet they look like a skirt…. Wonderful!
Most people bring Aladdin and Ali Baba to mind when they see these trousers however, although they have the name Ali Baba, they were actually first brought to the world by Frenchman Paul Poiret in 1911. Paul was a Parisienne courtier with a penchant for designing new and unique clothing. A Man after our own hearts!
It took a while but the trousers took off around the world and have been styled into those which are around today.
When they were first designed, a pleated skirt would be on top of the trousers for a layered effect. There is no need for this in modern times as they have the longer crotch to make them more skirt like.
